hickenlooper and the republican governor, paul ryan's home state of wisconsin, scott walker. governors, welcome back to "meet the press," both of you. >> glad to be back. >> both states are pretty tight here, pretty remarkable is tight as well, good news for romney. a rrn hasn't won your state since 1984. and in colorado, governor hickenlooper, look at our latest polling from nbc news and marist. 48-48. i know talking to the obama campaign. i know they think it's not that close, but they know it's tight. governor hickenlooper, you start, what's decisive? what tips the scales in your state and in this election? >> well i think if you look at the mess that president obama inherited and i mean losing 800,000 jobs a month, month after month, the first few months of his presidency. he's turned it around, got 32 months of job creation, 5.2 million jobs. the national export initiative, exports were up 38%. i think people are going to hear that and i think they're going to recognize that governor romney's plan of adding $2 trillion to military spending and at the same time promising $5 trillion of tax
. the same for mitt romney and paul ryan. they are feeling good about a lot of states where they've closed with the president, if they haven't surpassed him. what they're always hoping, too, tamron is that this is 1980 and that there's going to be a last-minute wave for romney. had they come to the polls, they go, i've really gone back and forth. it's time for something new and that he ends up winning, and maybe it's not by a landslide, but by a very healthy margin. and that's what they're counting on in these final days. >> keith, let me bring you in. i want to play a little bit of what the director of marist polling had to say about what we're seeing in some of these numbers. let's play it. >> mitt romney's favorable, unfavorable is still upside down in iowa, not in new hampshire or wisconsin. iowa is still maintaining that pattern that we've seen a lot this fall. so it hasn't moved for him. the other thing is iowa is a huge early voting state. and i think if the story of this election ends up being the re-election, if it does of president obama, it's going to be all about the early voti
state, including a rousing rally with paul ryan last night in north canton, ohio. the campaign says about 8,000 people showed up for that event, braving some pretty brisk temperatures outside last night. now, he still has some work to do here. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50 to 46, four points. that's about half of what the lead was just a few weeks ago. governor romney has chipped into that lead, but he still has some ways to go. for the president, he just wrapped up a 5,000-plus-mile barn storming tour. he took the day off the trail, spent a lot of time doing interviews on the radio and television, including mvp. he's trying to court that young vote that helped him win the white house four years ago. back to sandy, they have cancelled events in new hampshire and virginia. the president campaigns in new hampshire today. governor romney heads off to florida. >> joe and nika are here with "weekend mojo." president obama voted early. do you think that's going to play a role? >> early voting obviously very important. we were talking about this earlier. the polls break a big
the end of october. >> david gregory, the running mate, is paul ryan. >> right. >> some thought it could have been rob portman. what's interesting here is that if ryan comes up short in getting wisconsin there, and he comes up short in ohio -- >> first of all, rob portman is a senior adviser and he delivered the southern part of the state in 2004 for president bush and i think that ryan gave romney a lift in intangible ways. i think there's a lot of value there and he is from wisconsin. again, i think whether it's wisconsin is the firewall as opposed to iowa is one question. >> the problem is, it doesn't give them enough numbers if you listen to everything else. >> it doesn't added a up in a plausible way that the four of us would say -- >> i spent two days last week in wisconsin talking to a ton of folks on both sides of the aisle. they said to me, after romney puts ryan on the ticket, the numbers moved in wisconsin for governor romney. romney never came back from is wis. wisconsin. he was back there. >> david gregory, you lived in wisconsin in '04 with bush. >> and he came up short. >>
for two days. he's cancelled events in battleground states across the country. so has paul ryan. at a certain point, he must step back into the campaign and he has to do so gracefully. if e he does so in a bombastic way, in too negative of a way, it could block back at him. so both candidates are being called on to fill a role. the trouble is the storm doesn't happen on schedule. it doesn't give them permission on what to show their best side. it's especially hard for romney. obama knows his role. he knows what he needs to do here. for romney, it's a much tougher challenge. >> you're teaching me a lot tonight. very impressive on your part. i mean it. good stuff. we'll be right back with more on hurricane sandy and its political power in just a moment. 2013 chevrolet malibu ls, re-imagined from the ground up with 10 air bags and the reassurance of onstar, standard for six months. this is the new malibu -- already an iihs 2012 top safety pick. and now with low lease programs, a malibu state of mind has never been easier to get to, no matter what state you live in. ♪ >>> let me f

romney is about to kick off a disaster relief event in ohio. he and paul ryan have scrapped official campaign stops in the wake of the storm. the governor asking people in iowa last night to help and remember those affected up and down the eastern seaboard. >> american red cross is, of course, accepting donations and if you have a little extra you can send off to the american red cross, join us in doing that and make sure we do our very best to help those that are being impacted by the storm. we love our fellow americans. wish them well. >> great advice at this time of need. joining me now is john spiteser, communications director for the republican national committee. it's good to see you this morning and mitt romney is not going have any official stops today. one thing i do want to play for everybody, the comment played a few minutes ago by new jersey governor chris christie about the election next week. we are down to the pivotal days left. >> this administration at the moment could give a damn less about election day. >> all right. if you give a damn -- i know chris christie said

of one of the worst moments of the campaign, which we saw here on "morning joe" when paul ryan went to a soup kitchen in ohio after the patrons were gone and put on a crispy white apron and appeared to wash dishes that looked clean. later said they were dirty. mitt romney has to look presidential at times when it would be tempting to do a photo op. to remind you that both campaigns have a real feeling of trepidation at the moment. you pointed out numbers that looked good for romney. but that north carolina poll that you showed, romney tied right before the election, and politico, the carl rove group, up at eight states including north carolina, not a good sign, and fascinatingly, they are not advertising wisconsin, karl rove thinks it's not going to happen for mitt romney considerably narrowing his options. >> what do you make, mike, of what we were talking about earlier? pennsylvania and minnesota attracting money from both campaigns and valuable time from president clinton? >> yeah, it's insurance by them, but i think you made a great point. the bill clinton in minnesota, an aston
on brave fronts, obviously. today paul ryan's going to be going to colorado, and then they're going to work back to wisconsin and end up on ohio on friday with a big rally there. i don't know how this plays out. my own instinct is, in reading everything that i am, talking to all the campaigns, it's too close to call at this point. i think we're going to have a very long night. this is one more demonstrati demonstration -- i know you're tired of me saying this, an unforeseen impact. and there are other things that could go awry and in some way affect this. but i do think it froze the campaign for romney. he had momentum going. and then everything went on hold for a while. and what the impact of that will be come tuesday, it's hard to know. but it is a reminder of we work best when we work together on things when there's a big challenge. and these challenges go well beyond what happened with sandy. >> let's cover it all. president obama is pledging quick relief for the millions of victims of hurricane sandy. today he's scheduled to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside govern
